Assemble a tableau straight out of a spooky movie. The animals in this witch's latest shipment seem to have escaped their crates and are inhabiting these ghostly green pumpkins.

Assemble the crate according to package instructions.
Mix water with dark-gray acrylic paint to make it pale and thin. Use a paintbrush to paint the crate once; let dry.
Stencil a frightening phrase onto the side of the crate: Hold stencils in place with masking tape; use the seam in the crate as a guide to keep the letters straight.
Dip a sponge brush in black acrylic paint, and blot it. Then dab paint inside each stencil. Let dry, and remove stencils.
